The security of your role is not affected

Following a review, there are about to be changes made to the structure of our team. We have received letters today inviting us along to a "first formal consultation meeting". The line above has been used in the letter but I am hoping someone can clarify - does that mean that there will be no changes to that person's role at all or just that they are not in danger of being made redundant?
For clarity, I'm not in work today so haven't received my letter - this is my colleague's. I'm interested as I suspect mine may say something different.

I would read that as meaning they are not in danger of being made redundant.

It could mean anything. They are still at stage of considering options. They probably have a preferred way forward but want to make sure they properly consider the views of staff. This does not mean they will not go forward with what they have originally planned.

I wouldn't want to scare you but the use of the word consultation and change in structure of the team would lead me to believe the opposite as there is a duty to consult in redundancy situations.
